2016 Olympics In Chicago
    #11165386 - 10/01/09 08:03 PM (8 years, 2 months ago)

They announce tomorrow, but I think that's how it will probably work out.

My Dad was complaining about it the other day, saying the city can't afford it and how nobody wants it except the Mayor, but he always gets what he wants.

Funny stuff.

But I think they'll get it because B-Rock went over there and I don't think his handlers would have let him go unless they had some assurances that it was in the bag.  He doesn't want to go over there and look like a loser.

So there are going to be a ton of really pissed off people in Chicago, and the whole thing will come in massively over-budget because of the corruption in Chicago.

It will probably be fucking awesome because Chicago is the best city on the face of the planet, but it will be a huge disaster for anyone who lives there.

When  is that festering shithole of corruption going to pay the American taxpayer back for the douchnozzle's lobbying expenses?

Chicago is about to teach Salt Lake City how to run a corrupt sporting enterprise.  In spades.

I didn't realize they were announcing so soon.  Now I'm sure they had already decided before asshole went to Copenhagen.

Yah, I don't think Axelrod lets him go if it's not a shoe-in.

Ya know what I mean?

And yes, it will be a financial melt-down of epic proportions.

I think it's a dead heat between Chicago and Rio de Janeiro.  Chicago would probably be the more obvious choice, but Rio does have the emotional argument that there has never been an Olympics in S. America.

I believe they announce around 12:30PM EST.

Chicago was just eliminated from the running. It will probably be in Rio.

Tokyo out, now it's between Madrid and Rio. 
Quite the stunning diplomatic success for Barry and Michelle, no?  I can't believe he went there without knowing the outcome.

Chicago never had a chance


the US hosted the olympics too recently.



IMO they should just have it in China again.
